If you’re one of the many who have been anxiously awaiting the news about the new season of America’s Next Top Model, you’re in luck, because CW announced the details recently for Cycle 20, including the fact that Rob Evans will be back. On the bright side though, we’re in for a hot new twist – the addition of male models! Details inside…
That’s right, when America’s Next Top Model returns this summer for Cycle 20, there will be male models in the mix. In a recent press release, CW announced:
“Eight men and eight women will live under one roof and battle it out to earn the prestigious title of America’s Next Top Model. This cycle will explore the similarities and differences that male and female models face in the pursuit of their careers, bringing on experts and celebrities to mentor and challenge them each week. There will be more than a little opportunity for rivalry, flirtation and romance.
The model hopefuls will compete for a career-launching prize package that includes new prize suppliers Next Model Management and GUESS, as well as NYLON magazine. The winner will receive prizes including: $100,000 national ad campaign with GUESS, whose advertising campaigns have launched many modeling careers; a fashion feature in NYLON magazine, as well as a modeling contract with Next Model Management.
In addition to the panel of judges, which includes Banks, fashion public relations maven Kelly Cutrone and former boxer and international male supermodel Rob Evans, the public will again be able to have a say in who stays and who goes in the competition. Famed stylist Johnny Wujek returns as photo shoot creative consultant and top fashion blogger Bryanboy will return as the social media correspondent, mentoring the models and highlighting the scores, comments and video messages from the viewers that will be revealed in the show during judging.”
